    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, feel free to look around and add a comment or send me a note. Sharing life’s BEAUTIs from my perspective…enjoy! Jenelle

Britany and Brooke | Sisters

Better than one gorgeous girl is photographing two beauties!  Having 3 sisters myself, I love seeing sisters together and the connection only sisters share.  Something so much greater than the biological connection.  You can tell these two share so much in one another’s lives and enjoy the times they spend together.  It made for a fabulous afternoon!  We ended with this special sister time.  A little tea party with vintage teacups and a teapot of their Grandma’s.

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit and a golden thread to the meaning of life – Isadora James

Jeannine - Beautiful!

Britany | Weyburn, Sk heritage house

I know I keep saying it but I really loved each time I took photos in the heritage houses and every sessions was so much fun!

Thinking back to when I first met Britany, who also works for the magazine, we easily could have spent the entire afternoon chatting away.  With similar taste and loving vintage + pretty things, I cannot wait to see all that this incredible bride-to-be will put together for their July wedding!!  I know it will be very beautiful and filled with special, pretty details!

Melissa - What a stunning looker! I have no words for the 5th one down! GORG! Can’t wait to see what what she comes up with for her wedding!

Brooke | Weyburn, Sk heritage house

I adored my time with this gorgeous lady!   I’ve gotten to know Brooke over the past several months from doing some photography for Fine Lifestyles magazine.  You might recognize her as being co-publisher for the Estevan Weyburn magazine.  A total sweetheart with stunning smile that carried thru to the last shots we took in these pretty, vintage surroundings!

Melissa - Such a fresh beauty in a vintage setting! So pretty!

Zieglgansberger family

When we needed to postpone their shoot again because of weather in early February I surely thought by mid-April a lot of our snow would have melted.  Not so.  A cold wind blew hard but we were determined to capture their family’s first portraits.  What an honor!  I was glad Nicole told me they were adventurous.  Getting up into the loft of our barn, especially with a 1 year old, is just that!  The light pouring thru the missing slats + cracks takes me in every time.  This barn has a lot of history being built over 80 years ago.  A real juxtaposition with a young family excited of what their future will bring!

Nicole is also a photographer so their sweet little girl has a lot of experience in front of a camera.  Lexus stayed pretty serious but I just love how bright eyed she is and she did so well considering this weather.  She maybe even let her parents snuggle her a bit more than usual!  Nicole has her studio outside of Estevan and specializes in newborn photography – NZ photography.

I try to leave time during family sessions to capture just the parents.  I especially love when clients request beforehand that we make time for the two of them!

Melissa - Spectacular barn and fence! I’m sorry about your weather but kudos to you and that adorable family for braving it!

Stephen family | Eleuthera, Bahamas

I had very sweet and gorgeous beach girls to photograph on our family vacation.  A couple of my many very darling nieces!

Encompassed in soft pastel skies and tranquil water at sunset.  Making our secluded spot extra peaceful.  The sun drops quickly so we twirled in the water and then ran down the sand to our favorite dock.  She has grown up so much, the oldest of the cousins.  They were all so much fun to be with!

The younger one is most often smiling, loves to be goofy and equally as loveable!  She wakes up early so we snuck out of the house one morning and she taught me to be a ballerina among other things in her cutest little ways.

The chief BBQ guy and stellar smoothie-making lady!  I sure wouldn’t pass up holidaying again with these guys!  And not just for tasty food + cool drinks.
